The Best Public Art I Have Ever Seen


As I was wandering through the fairgrounds I noticed this sculpture of a man canterlevered off a pole in the central concourse. There was also a ladder against the pole which prompted me to think that this was an installation that had not been completed on time.  For whatever reason I decided to stop and watch as they installed the other sculpture that I could see wrapped up on the floor.
I was somewhat surprised to see two fellows get up a ladder to afix the other sculpture shrouded in a blue cloth. Again, for whatever reason I decided to stick around...it must have taken ten minutes for them to lift the other sculpture into place, screw it into the pole and cantilever it out like the other one.
That was when I realized it wasn't just another sculpture...it was a human being balanced on a structure attached to the pole.  As the shroud and ladders were removed the public started to gather around. At first they thought there were two sculptures...but one seemed to be moving ever so slightly.  It was absolutely fascinating to watch.  Before long a very large crowd gathered and I moved on.  But I felt very fortunate to happen to see this installation being created. 
While we are now used to seeing people transformed into statues along the streets of the world, I had never seen anything quite like this. Kudos to whoever thought up the idea! It's the best public art I have ever seen.

As my friend Alvin W wrote, for this to happen in Canada there would have to be a safety net under the living sculpture!
